"Riot" as written by and Denaun M/smith Porter....
What you wanted couldn't hold us down
What we needed turned it's back so
Out-loud, we're telling your secrets
Out-loud, to the lovers and fees
Out-loud, 'cause you never experienced
This is the side of us nobody sees

We're making something beautiful
Starting a riot
We've got this under our control
Starting a fight

What you wanted couldn't hold us now
What we needed all came crashing down
Down, with the lies and cover ups
Down down, to the lovers and fees
Down now, 'cause you never experienced
This is the side that I'll never believe in

We're making something beautiful
Starting a riot
We've got this under our control
Starting a fight
We're making something
We're taking nothing
We're starting something beautiful
Start a riot

What you wanted

We're making something beautiful
Starting a riot
We've got this under our control
Starting a fight
We're making something
We're taking nothing
We're starting something beautiful
Start a riot (Hey, hey)
Riot (Hey, hey)
Riot (Hey, hey)

    General Commenti agree with perfectlyimperfectt. it needs way more comments!!
    they're taking down the things they don't believe in and causing some disruption even though it's not what they're about. they're doing it for a cause, so it's beautiful.
    it's a great song and i love how they're against the fake-ness and everything; describes my mood sometimes.
